UK Trainer Still Keen On Melb Cup For Munsef

Wednesday, 16th September 2009

Meanwhile UK trainer Ian Williams confirmed 7YO gelding Munsef (Zafonic-Mazaya, by Sadler's Wells) is still in contention for a Melbourne Cup campaign, following his 2nd-placing in Sunday's Gr3 Stockholm Cup International (2400m) at Taby in Sweden. At his previous start, Munsef also finished runner-up in August's UK Listed Chester Stakes (13.5 furlongs) & Williams told racingpost.com: "Once Dr Koukash (owner Dr Marwan Koukash) gets back from Sweden, it's something that's very much up for discussion. He's guaranteed a run, he's got a nice weight (53kg) & it's certainly something that's up for consideration. It would be a nice thing to do."
